Recommended Posts

Quote

Mansfield Town striker Ryan Evans has died at the age of 18.

Ryan, who was the captain of their U18 performance group, died recently at home just days after accepting a place in their U21 squad ahead of next season.

Mansfield U18 coach Jamie McGuire said in a statement: "We are all desperately sorry to learn of this news and our thoughts and prayers are sent to Ryan's family at this sad time.

"As a player, Ryan was a fantastic leader, always willing to learn and had a never-ending enthusiasm to do the best he could. It was for these reasons, amongst others, that I made him my captain last season. We'll remember him as a smiling young man, with a great energy and charm."
